Telegram Update coming with new features luring WhatsApp users to switch

Platforms such as Telegram and Signal are seeing impressive popularity following WhatsApp’s controversial policy changes. Recently, Signal added some new features, luring users to switch their preferences from Whatsapp. Subsequently, Telegram also brought new features to its app. As per the reports by TestingCatalog, Telegram’s new features include QR code-based invite links, content reporting, and widget support. Well, these features are seen in the latest beta update for now, but will soon be available for the public in the upcoming Telegram update.

Users can also add a telegram widget on their device’s home screen. Two sizes will be available for the same –  a small 2×2 sized and a bigger 5×2. The small 2×2 widget will contain four group chat icons that will come with notification bubbles. While the 5×2 widget shows chat-previews along with the icons. These previews can be from the most interacted chats, channels, or groups. However, the users can customize the widget according to their convenience. 

Message auto-deletion

The updated features will also include added support for the auto-deletion of messages. These options will be available only for the group admins.

Although, these features are only available for the latest beta version. Thus, you cannot get it on Google Play Store. You can still check out them via downloading the Telegram v7.5 beta APK.
